And most embarrassing, there’s going to be a public auction of her personal stuff — furniture, a boat, that pool table, etc., etc. — held at her house next month, which should lead to must-see TV for “Real Housewives” fans.
]]>hidden personal assets. John Sywilok, whose job is to assess the Giudices’ assets and distribute the proceeds to creditors, first claimed the couple didn’t list profits from several businesses, including a laundromat, her Fabulicious clothing and accessory company, a pizza parlor and her cookbook, “Skinny Italian.” According to The Wall Street Journal, the Giudices are also accused of undervaluing personal items such as a pool table ($1,000), wedding bands ($400) and living room furniture ($2,000). But according to People, the Giudice’s attrorney, Jim Kridel, says the couple did not hide sources of income. “The contract for Teresa’s book was signed after the bankruptcy petition was filed, and all money was received post petition,” he says. As for the pizzeria, it is owned by Joe’s father and should not have been considered an asset at the time of the filing. Kridel also points out that auctioning off the couple’s personal property may not help much. “You can’t sell used, personal property for the sticker price,” he says. “A $5,000 chandelier won’t sell for $5,000.” A hearing on the matter has not been scheduled. But there are plans for an Aug 22 auction of the home’s furnishing, accessories, tools, even a boat. Will Danielle Staub be on hand for the embarrassing enhanced garage sale at the Guidices’ Towaco, N.J. mansion? Of course she will. Maybe she’ll pick up a pool table? Let’s hope Bravo will film the auction and that Danielle can stand to lose a few more clumps of hair extensions. Follow Zap2it and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.
